Do You Have The Right Water Pressure In Your Home?
Every home and every community is different when it comes to high or low water pressure. That is why it is best to consult with a professional plumber to know for sure what the right pressure is for your particular house. While it is often overlooked, water pressure can have a substantial and sometimes damaging effect on home plumbing. This is especially true when it comes to high water pressure that can easily result in permanent damage and ongoing leakage.
Have a Certified or Experienced Technician Inspect Your Home
Keep in mind that high water pressure can cause serious damage to not only pipes, but also connections as well as a wide array of home appliances. As a note, pressure-reducing valves that are used in older homes can often drive up the pressure of water to dangerous levels. This type of older pressure reducing valve is frequently seen in municipalities where older homes are common. The only way to know for sure if the water pressure within the pipes in your home is correct is to have a certified or experienced technician inspect your home to check the pressure.
Thousands of Dollars in Water Damage
Homeowners can buy a device at a local hardware store that can measure water pressure, if you are unsure of what you are doing it is again best to call in a professional. High water pressure ultimately can cause tens of thousands of dollars in water damage when a leak happens. Low water pressure is also a comfort issue and can damage some devices. Play it safe and always make sure that your home has the right water pressure as it relates to existing plumbing.
